Short break ideas for Autumn
19 September 2009
Save up to £116 on a late-summer holiday in Croatia – staying at the three-star Hotel Villas Kolocep on the small, laid-back island of Kolocep – courtesy of specialist operator, Holiday Options.
This traffic-free island – seven kilometres from Dubrovnik and reached by a daily boat service – has only 150 local inhabitants and is the ideal place to ‘chill’ and re-charge batteries before the onset of winter. Hotel facilities include outdoor pool, tennis, boules and massage, along with cycle hire and watersports.
The revised twin share price of £399 per person applies to seven-night holidays departing Gatwick or Manchester on 4, 11 and 18 October and includes return flights, transfers and accommodation with breakfast. See holidayoptions.co.uk
Bag a bargain-priced autumn holiday in North Devon and enjoy savings of 50%, courtesy of Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks.
This extra special deal applies to holidays and short breaks in luxury two and three bedroom centrally-heated ‘Honeysuckle Lodges’, completed by 24 October, and means, for instance a three-night weekend – or four-night midweek break – now costs just £115 for a party of six, equating to less than £20 per person.
On-site facilities include heated indoor pools, tennis, nine-hole golf, ten-pin bowling and cinema, along with children’s clubs and nightly entertainment with star cabaret. See woolacombe.com/bp
Put your best foot forward this autumn and enjoy a trekking holiday in the Pyrenean Foothills - taking in the magical, medieval Cathar Castles between Tuchan and Quillan – courtesy of specialist operator, Belle France.
This six-night holiday, available until the end of October, is for the independent walker and passes through a changing and beautiful landscape, taking in craggy peaks, chestnut forests and traditional Pyrenean villages.
The twin share price of £619 per person includes half-board accommodation in carefully chosen, friendly chambre d’hotes and small hotels, luggage transfers between overnights, plus detailed route notes and maps. UK travel is not included, but return channel crossings or rail tickets can be booked on request. See bellefrance.co.uk
